Has anyone had the opportunity to use the new PA08 pump? The SA08 semi auto? Looks like nice guns for the money.

Worked a couple over at Dicks Sporting Goods. Solid feel, chrome bolt, smooth workings and not a loose rattler. The Wood version is pretty, but the lacquer-like finish is cheap and will show scratches-dings real easy.

David Petznal of "gun nuts" fame picked the PA-08 Synthetic as a durable "bottom of the boat" waterfowl gun equal to the Rem 870 and Mossberg 500. That's a decent endorsement.

Mine is nice and smooth. It feels like a more expensive shotgun and looks like it too. Easy to aim and shoot. Maybe because the wood is heavier but I don't feel the recoil as much as my 870 Shurshot Express.
